Moline Acres MO Criminal Defense Lawyer - just $450

Only $450 For Most Moline Acres Missouri Misdemeanor Criminal Defense Why Is It a Good Idea to Hire a Defense Attorney? Can’t I Just Represent Myself?
  1. Yes, you can. But when you represent yourself, the court will treat you just like they would any other attorney. In other words, the judge will not give you any leeway just because you didn’t go to law school.
  2. And nine times out of ten, the person representing themselves will do nothing more than plead guilty to the charge.
  3. But an experienced lawyer will know how to get the charges reduced down to something minor (so that nothing negative shows up on your record), or in some cases, we can even get the charges dropped (depending on the facts of your case)
Pleading Guilty Is Not Your Best Option!! So What Will Happen if I Decide to Just Plead Guilty?
  1. The charges will become a part of your permanent record
  2. Once on your record, anyone running a simple background check will be able to see it
  3. This will in turn have a negative impact on your chances of getting a decent job (or get an apartment, or even taking out a student loan)
Can You Describe the Main Differences Between a Felony and a Misdemeanor?
  1. Only the state can issue a felony; the smaller municipalities in and around St Louis can only issue misdemeanors
  2. Felonies are reserved for criminal behavior that is more serious; as a result, the potential jail time and fines are going to be far more severe

I've used this firm twice, both for speeding tickets. Both times it was zero hassle: just a matter of giving them the ticket. I've also recommended them to my friends, who have had the same experience. (My friends and I speed a lot.) Highly recommended. I'm sure I'll be back. David Rieken
